Woman accused of raping a child in police custody

Elizabethton Police Department officers said a 25-year-old woman wanted on criminal charges including rape of a child turned herself in Monday evening.

According to an EPD news release, Amber N. Ray of Johnson City, is currently being held in the Carter County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.

Last month, a Carter County Grand Jury indicted Ray on charges of rape of a child and incest, following an investigation into allegations of child sexual abuse that happened back in 2012-2013.
